Arrest of doc on child abuse charges; GMOA unaware who he is

Vice President of the Government Medical Officers’ Association, Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya said that he was unaware of the identity of the doctor arrested for sexually abusing some of his patients,including children. However, if he was a doctor of western medicine the Sri Lanka Medical Council would have to take action against him if found guilty of the charges, he said.

The suspect attached to the Kegalle District was arrested on Monday (29) following an investigation carried out by the National Child Protection Authority Police Desk for allegedly abusing young female patients on the pretext of carrying out medical investigations. He had reportedly videoed the scenes using a hidden pen camera.

Chairman NCPA, Anoma Dissanayake said the NCPA had investigated the matter when they found one of his video clips. She warned parents to be watchful when their children were examined by doctors. (DJ)
